Sheep Flock Management

Flock management of sheep involves individual performance monitoring of sheep in every flock and then applying it to the flock level. Monitoring of individual sheep is hard but this can be achieved using today's technology using ear tags, readers, measurement devices and computer software. Overall performance of a sheep flock is dependent on many factors that include the type of operation, health status, facilities, selection of appropriate genetics, target markets for the products, feed back from the consumer, record keeping, breeding program and financial budgets.
